    My wife and I are season pass holders and we are in Florida from Nov.1st - April 30th.we have become very discouraged by the overcrowded theme parks.We usually visit WDW 4 times each season.Can you tell us the least crowded dates in our time frame.

    Hi Edward,

    We, too, are Florida resident seasonal passholders and have been for about 15 years. One of the reasons we choose that pass is because it has block-out dates during the very most popular periods and we would rather try to plan our visits when crowds are lighter.

    And we love the fact that these passes give us the flexibility to come and go as we please throughout most of the year and to adjust our schedule on the spot if one park seems more popular than we like on a particular day.

    The seasonal pass block-out dates include the week before and the week after Christmas and the week before and the week after Easter. Other more crowded times include Thanksgiving week, Martin Luther King weekend and President's Day week. Mid-March to mid-April also are busy because of spring breaks.

    So, to visit four times between November and April using a seasonal pass, I'd recommend:
    • As early in November as possible after your arrival.
    • Between about December 1 and December 15
    • Between Martin Luther King weekend and President's Day week
    • The end of April

    You also will find lighter crowds during the week in those time periods than weekends.

    I hope that helps. Please let me know if I can offer any other questions related to being a Disney-loving Florida resident. Enjoy!
